Akaroa Day Tour

Cruise around the harbour dolphin-spotting and sample some of the best cheese on the island

Akaroa Day Tour

Head out to the unspoilt old French whaling depot of Akaroa and explore the picturesque setting your way. Make sure your camera is charged, as there are endless idyllic landscapes to capture. You’ll stop at Lake Ellesmere and Little River on your journey, as well as Hill Top, which promises panoramic views of the harbour. Explore the historic buildings and craft shops, before enjoying lunch at Bully Hayes Restaurant & Bar, set on the waterfront. Spot dolphins, penguins and seals from the deck of the Canterbury cat during a two-hour cruise, before your final stop: the Cheese Factory at Barry’s Bay, which is home to some of the finest cheeses in New Zealand.
